Edge Of The Edge By Panda Bear & Sonic Boom
Panda Bear (aka Noah Lennox, of Animal Collective) and his old pal Sonic Boom (aka Pete Kember, who once upon a time was in Spacemen 3) have teamed up for Reset — a collaborative album largely built from samples, some of them quite expensive.
Last month they shared the Gum-beloved, Troggs-sampling “Go On.” Today they’ve got a new one.
“Edge Of The Edge” features a sample of Randy & The Rainbows’ 1963 doo-wop hit “Denise,” and its topline suggests Panda Bear could have made a killing writing pop songs in the pre-Beatles era — something you already knew intuitively if you’ve been following his career.
The song arrives today with a trippy video by Danny Perez, which you can watch below.
